Parade Technologies, a provider of digital video interface products, has introduced a DisplayPort-to-HDMI/DVI converter device. The PS161 is an integrated circuit that includes a DisplayPort receiver, a HDMI/DVI transmitter, and an optional HDCP repeater. Used inside an HDMI-or DVI-enabled digital TV or monitor, the PS161 provides a DisplayPort input for computer-to-TV connectivity.

Within a DTV or monitor application, the PS161 is typically placed between the DisplayPort input and HDMI/DVI receiver circuit, which is often integrated into the DTV or monitor system chip. If an HDMI/DVI switch is used to support multiple inputs, the PS161 can be used on one of the switched inputs. The HDMI switch allows selection between multiple HDMI/DVI inputs, or the DisplayPort input via the PS161 DisplayPort to HDMI/DVI converter. The PS161 also supports DisplayPort audio, which is part of the DisplayPort standard. Along with video data, digital audio received at the PS161 DisplayPort input is retransmitted on the HDMI output.
